** In ''I love sushi'', Drake and Josh find two people who are supposedly producers from a reality TV series called ''Pump My Room'' holding a contest for a room makeover with suspiciously easy rules which include shooting a video showing the producers the room you want redone and why you feel you deserve it. The boys decide to get the makeover for their parents fifth anniversary to compensate for their half-assed gifts in the past and they end up winning. The producers then tell them to make sure their whole family is out of the house between 11 AM and 5 PM, a good six hours, while they redo the room.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The boys to know better than to let complete strangers into their house while nobody is home and to refuse, or better yet, mention it to their parents or the police.\\
'''Instead:''' They don't question or have any suspicions about the producers unusual request whatsoever and comply with it. And [[SarcasmMode big shocker]], when the boys return home with their parents that night after keeping them out driving all over town, instead of a made over living room, they find a completely bare one. The police even lampshade this trope to the boys after they explain the situation.\\

'''Instead''': Neither party thinks this far ahead. As a result, [[spoiler:Cersei sets the High Sparrow on Margaery and Loras, earns the Sparrow's wrath when her cousin confesses to sleeping with her, and later on kills the Sparrows and the Tyrells, except Olenna, at her "trial". Tommen also kills himself when he sees the fire and realizes his wife is dead. Olenna becomes a DeathSeeker and allies with Dany to declare war once and for all on Queen Cersei, without thoughts of survival.]]

** After [[spoiler:murdering all of the House of Frey, Arya decides to return to King's Landing to assassinate Cersei. Along the way she encounters a group of peacekeeping Lannister soldiers, implied to be new blood and the bottom of the barrel.]]\\
'''You'd Expect''': The soldiers would be [[spoiler:suspicious of a girl wandering around on her own with a sword.]]\\
'''Instead''': They aren't. [[spoiler:They insist Arya sit with them and feed her, while talking about their hopes for their families. Fortunately Arya only kills people who have crossed her; she doesn't have it in her to go on a rampage against these men.]]

* In one episode of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', Dr. Cox asks J.D. to tape the birth of his friend's child and provides him with a tape recorder (already containing a tape) to do so.
**'''You'd Expect:''' that the tape in the tape recorder would be the one Dr. Cox expected J.D. to use, since he didn't say anything to indicate otherwise.
**'''Instead:''' ''After'' the baby has been born Dr. Cox reveals that he "punches out the tabs" on all of his tapes, so the one already in the recorder was unable to be taped over. This means that there is no video, despite J.D. attempting to take one.
**'''The Cherry on Top:''' Dr. Cox berates J.D. for not automatically assuming that he should have gotten a fresh tape without any hint that he should do so, then fakes a tape for his friends with a baby that looks nothing like theirs.

'''As A Result''': Predictably, Zoom arrives at the party not long after, takes Henry hostage, and uses the stunned crowd at his advantage. He pretty much goads Barry into admitting how Zoom and Barry are NotSoDifferent, and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice kills Henry right away]]. This leads the so-called victory party to outright mourning, and Barry himself was tricked to accept Zoom's challenge for a last race. Said race will power up the superweapon, which is set to destroy all other universes excluding Earth-1 (note that it consists of Zoom's own home, as well as Supergirl's Earth. This will create a Domino Effect that will force Barry to eventually create Flashpoint.

** In "Invincible", Barry and Wells just defeated the ENTIRE legion of Zoom's metahuman army, ''including Zoom himself''.
'''You'd Expect:''':Team Flash to immediately detect Zoom and throw him in the Pipeline, without any further delay.
'''Instead:'''Zoom creates a breach (no thanks to the earlier WhatAnIdiot moment, right above), and escapes to Earth-2.
'''You'd Now Expect''':Barry and Cisco to go to Earth-2 and track Zoom. Cisco has a hacking ability only bettered by the Calculator and Felicity Smoak, and indeed can track most of the metahumans in the right time.
'''Instead''': Barry and Team Flash with their family members,decide to ''party'' at their 'victory'. Apparently, when your worst enemy has the power to create and escape breaches whenever he likes, and just bids his time to strike, that moment is a great victory.

** A meth cook/addict chews gum while he works and occasionally dips it in citric acid to keep it fresh.\\
'''You'd Think:''' He'd keep the citric acid away from all the dangerous chemicals.\\
'''Instead:''' He places the citric acid right next to red phosphorus, an explosive substance in meth and fireworks. Eventually, during a meth-fueled rush, the addict dips the gum in red phosphorus and when he bites down on the gum, his jaws apply 120 lbs of pressure, igniting the red phosphorus, blowing his lower jaws off, and causing his brain to compress to the back of his skull, killing him.

* At least twice on ''The Next Food Network Star'', somebody has had to open a bottle or jar and [[EpicFail failed terribly]].\\
'''You'd Think:''' They'd open it conventionally, by, y'know, twisting the top. If it's stuck, maybe stick it under some hot water. No biggie, they're chefs, they can handle this.\\
'''Instead:''' They decide to either tap it against the counter or ''cut off the top of the bottle with a knife''. In both cases, glass got too close to the dishes they were making, forcing them to throw them out.
** In Season 5, Eddie made an absolutely rancid watermelon-and-onion salad for a challenge, and was a candidate for elimination.\\
'''You'd Think:''' He would attempt to take the criticism gracefully, in the hopes that maybe a show of contrition would earn some mercy from the judges.\\
'''Instead:''' Eddie tried to save himself by claiming "It was from a Paula Deen recipe." Thereby not only admitting that he had ripped off a recipe from one of the network's highest-profile stars, but that he ''didn't even rip it off correctly!'' Needless to say, the judges eliminated his ass with extreme prejudice.
